    Blank Keynotes

    Overtime projects add families and materials that are not coordinated with the office standard keynote.txt file. Additionally items can be keynoted with the "user" keynote. Is there a short cut to finding the objects that have keynotes that are not coordinated with the project's keynote.txt file? While in the keynote schedule one can right click and ask revit to "show" the object, but it doesn't always work.

    You could filter the legend, depending on how your office's keynotes.txt file is. For example, the default keynotes files that comes with Revit has all its Key values going from 01000 to 16000, using the sixteen CSI categories; if you see, all the key values contain zeros. So it might be easy to filter the legend by Key Value "Does not contain" = "0". That will probably give you a list of entries that don't follow the standard, most likely because they were entered manually in a dialog box (unless they have entered zeros as well, of course). Then you can use "Highlight in Model" on each row to see where those items are in the views.

      You could try to create a multi-category schedule with just te family / type name and keynote. Check off "itemize every instance" and sort on keynote. This should give you a pretty good idea on the keynotes used in the project. Keynotes that are off with the standard ones should stand out this way.

        Missing keynotes

        Thank you for the replies.
        I wound up just editing the entries on the keynotes files to point to the notes I want to use. Like this:

        08 51 13 ALUMINUM WINDOWS SEE SPECIFICATION SECTION 08 52 00

        Somewhere someone edited the keynote for an object or material to use the "08 51 13" number when I actually wanted to use the "08 52 00" number.
